Notes 
 There's an obvious risk with Carlos Correa, but the risk attached to him isn't performance-based, rather, it's injury based. Correa just can't stay on the field. When he does play - including last season - we've seen what he's can do, and those peak A-Rod comparisons are still there. What's going against Correa is not only his health, but the position he plays is insanely deep, so it's easier to fade him for guys like Corey Seager, Jorge Polanco, Marcus Semien, and Tim Anderson. Do you know what those guys don't have? They don't have No. 1 at the position upside, nor do they possess top-25 overall upside. Correa does, and he's still only 25 and entering his peak years. This is a great spot to grab him, and you can take one of those depth shortstops later on in the draft to pair with him in case he gets hurt again.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Still can slug his way to a good SS season. He deserves to be a Top 60 guy and falls this far because it's impossible to ignore the concerns. I want to rank him higher and won't be surprised if he plays better than I currently rank him.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 So far, we've only seen Correa play more than 110 games once in his five seasons. Whenever he is on the field, Correa has been a tremendous hitter so the upside is that of a top five fantasy shortstop but his floor is quite low because of the repeat injury risk.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Seager could break out in a major way this year. Remember, he was recovering from Tommy John surgery last year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hasn't played more than 110 games since 2016. Has posted an OPS north of .920 in two of the past three years
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Seager is a far cry from being an MVP candidate as a rookie, but his batting average won't kill you and he'll hit around 20-25 homers with 80+ RBIs and runs. If he is traded to Boston, he'd likely see a jump in every offensive statistic.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Underwent major elbow and hip surgeries in 2018. From 2016-17 hit .302/.370/.497. Draft aggresively
